May Coffee Date
How is your May going, friends?
A glimpse of how my May is going is that I normally have this post go live in the first week of the month. But it just means that so many things are happening. Let’s chat.
What I am Reading These Days
Still How Bad Do You Want It? This has everything to do with how busy I am and nothing to do with how good the book is. I have a few on deck that I am excited to get working on. Hopefully there will be a change of scenery for June, but no promises…
Current Worst Habit
Not buying groceries. I normally grocery shop every Monday and buy the same things that work into the meal plan my sports nutritionist has made for me. Now, I will get halfway through a week and run out of an essential item but realize that if I actually GO to the grocery store, it will necessitate a full grocery shop, which would require me to be at home for a week. So I am consuming some very bland and extremely strange meals these days. On Monday night, I ate carrots dipped in peanut butter followed by a baked sweet potato. Survival skills on point.
Current Favourite Song
This is a tough one right now because there is SO MUCH GREAT music released right now. It is a toss up between One Dance from Drake’s new album and ANYTHING from Above & Beyond’s new acoustic album.
One of my favourite things I did this month
I adore Above and Beyond and they came to Toronto Massey Hall for their acoustic tour. I went with Mark and we had the BEST SEATS. It was one of those concerts that you just kind of soak it all it all in and one of the best I have been to.
Coffee. So so much coffee.
I recently caught myself thinking “don’t judge me” while scarfing baby carrots in peanut butter in a Walmart parking lot. My training hunger has caused me to reach social rock bottom.
I did an interview with Drumfit on my blogging and running. I talk about how I started running, why all my recipes have 3 ingredients and the best part of blogging. (Hint. It’s you.) You can give it a listen here.
One of my coworkers has a candy table. I dislike candy so that is not an issue. Until she brought in the world’s largest bulk bag of chocolate covered peanut M&Ms.
I’m just over here dying from a sugar overdose.
Lack of time. I would like to think I am fairly efficient but my days are normally scheduled wall to wall from 5 AM to 9-10 PM. I love being busy but things are getting a little ridiculous this month.
My trisuit for the Ironman 70.3. So excited to rock the Performance Project gear out on the course.
Something new I tried
Ax throwing! My friend turned 26 and for his birthday, we headed to a place in Toronto that offered it.
Something new I’m going to try
The Goodlife Fitness City Chase. I have found a partner and I am all set to tackle 6 hours of awesome in June!
This looks like the most fun ever. If you want to join the fun, you can sign up here.
Coolest new discovery
Cute little brewery that just opened up in Toronto’s west end. I tried a sample of their finest and they have the CUTEST little glasses.
Brittany Moran. Girl just ran a 33:46 10 KM at Sporting Life and is all set to crush Ottawa next weekend. Excited to see what is ahead for her.
